some recycled ideas & selective inbreeding, this is a cross between the chic-o-stix, chicken in a cup, & blue swine pie.

I like cooking with ground meats – allows you to break away from the natural anatomy of the given animal & form any shape you want plus there’s no better tenderization method I know of. Of course there’s a recent trend toward letting it rot into a festering pile of post-enzymated fecal matter, but that ain’t my thing.

Chicken thigh meat works particularly well as it naturally contains a perfect amount of fat to keep it from dying out; this wouldn’t work with breast meat or lean ground beef.

Of course you could put whatever you want in this, but my inaugural chickypie contained roasted green & red peppers along with grilled Portobello mushrooms & swiss:

grind chicken thighs:


in a pie tin, spray just enough Pam to give your favorite rub something to stick to:


apply the thigh:


a layer of roasted green pepper:


a layer of swiss cheese:


a layer of grilled portobello mushrooms:


a layer of roasted red pepper


more thigh meat:


to the egg indirect (with everything but the exterior shell already cooked, phase one of cooking is really just a bake to firm up the chicken):


This would be a really good time to enjoy a fine beverage & some good music:



following a few, flip onto a grid (or veggie cooker) to get some smoke & color on the bottom, this would be a good time to sauce the top if you want. Leave on another 15 minutes-ish till it looks good:




all done:



Cut that beotch open & see what’s what:





Spring is definitely in the air here

    easy indeed, & the flavor can go as far as you push it. I was in a veggie mood, but also thought maybe a mid-layer of smoked sausage would be good, maybe some fresh herbs, a stroll through the supermarket could yield a lot of possibilities

    Interesting cook. I bet it was pretty good. My guess is good flavor and texture. ;)

    when zippy the pig was in his original pen, I accidentally dripped a stream of hogg fat from a drip pan through the table onto his eye. For a little while, it was bright orange, but over time turned black; that was a few years ago & he's still crying :laugh: :laugh:

  • Wow! What a great idea!!!

    You must be a creative chef for Taco Bell. Take four ingredients, put them together in a myriad of different layers and name each creation something new.

    Break out of the mold a little next time and quit being so predictable.
  • ZippylipZippylip Posts: 4,684
    some people think I do that in a current life :ohmy:

    Take it Hoss and run! I don't have a grinder. :woohoo:
  • W-O-W ! That looks incredibly awesome! I need to give that a try! Did you load the recipe in the recipe section??????? Pleeeese? Otherwise, I will have to guess and re-invent the wheel. Which, in Eggdom, can't be all that bad.

    Thanks for posting the great idea!

  • With your inspiration---a porkypie is now cooking on my egg.

    Filled with sauteed apples, bacon, shallots, ginger, carmalized onions and fontina cheese.

    Thanks for the creative vision.
